Subject: a question...
this mp3 quality here is not that good with how loud the crowd drowns out the sound, does anyone have a soundboard quality recordable version of this 2nd set? i would love to have a quality recording of this set again. thank you

Subject: The whole show..
is fast-paced for '76 and expertly played. Takes off with a fast and bright BIG RIVER. Set closer PITB is 18 min. and everything you expect.

2nd Set highlights. Bob asks the eternal question what would happen if the music ever started? The set really begins at CRAZY FINGERS which is beautiful with a stunning outro that has a different seque into DANCIN. This version is very large and upbeat. COSMIC CHARLIE wants to steal the show and almost does, it is an upbeat version with everyone present and beautiful leads. They tune up for the next set of songs and we are glad they do. Phil takes the lead into HELP ON THE WAY and everyone lets him as they all join in. SLIPKNOT! is always a favorite for me and this one does not dissapoint. Starting off very exploratory, devolving into its drums/space-ness that it has want to do - they go to some real primordial places here for sure. It gets down to just Jerry and the drummers then Phil joins in with some sublime Leshy Phil-o-drama. The experimentation goes on until Bobby brings the rythm back and they all come back to the surface to run and dance on top for awhile. This starts to sound a little like the Dark Stars of '69. Really. They all finally find a common vector in the universe to meet at so they can bubble into FRANKLIN'S TOWER. This is a really fine transition too. Too bad it goes into a very so-so FRANKLIN'S. The playing is good but they've lost the mojo they had and can't seem to concentrate. AROUND is not sounding stellar but still nice. Jerry is confused and tries to get fast too early and you're not really sure what they're going to do but they get slow again only to get fast in the next line. Then they just end it.

US BLUES kicks butt not.

Very nice show overall, well worth the listen. I'm thinking 6/11 and 6/12 were better shows though.

Subject: Good clean copy?
I have had this show partially on cassette for over 9 years now and it just recently broke. One of my favorite shows I have heard. I would love to get a cleaner copy than this. Redeyed, if you check this and would be willing to send a copy, I would be willing to send blanks. Thanks

Subject: Another perspective
I have a clean SBD of this show, and it is one of my favorites from 1976. It's all good, but the second set is particularly tasty, especially the Dancin>Cosmic Charlie, Help>Slip>Frank. The Cosmic Charlie is slow, but Jerry's lead is very pure, and the song shines as a result. The H>S>F that follows is just fantastic -- inventive, exploratory, and very, very well played. If you are disappointed by the version of ther show available for d/l, I urge you to seek out the clean SBD. This is a worthy addition to anyone's collection, and it gets regular time in my rotation.

Maybe the show is good, but the pitch on it is way toooooo slow. A mudpit.
